Derbeth (671) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is fruity, quite much alcohol. Lively carbonation. I think Leffe Blonde has aroma as rich as this one and does not disturb with so much alcohol. I won’t repeat it.

Forse la birra migliore tra le varie leffe, aspetto di un bel rosso rubino con sfumature ramate, schiuma beige che tiene abbastanza bene bolle medio piccole , odore che ricorda le pesche , uva sotto spirito e frutti rossi tra cui fragole , molto marcata la nota etilica , l’alcool al naso la farà da padrone per tutta la bevuta ma non sarà mai davvero invasivo, man mano che si scalda emerge una nota molto dolce quasi di miele o buccia di limone con la nota alcolica che a volte scompare gli odori sono equilibrati e la tendenza al dolce viene stemperata da un odore quasi metallico e affumicato, la carbonazione risulta corretta e contribuisce a renderla al primo sorso quasi acidula e rinfrescante , emergono sapori di frutta rossa, e fichi secchi il finale viene pulito dell’alcool che riscalda molto e lascia note affumicate chiudendosi con l’amaro che è poco potente e sbilancia forse la birra su un carattere dolce , l’equilibrio viene raggiunto con la nota affumicata che la rende una birra adatta a cibi con sapori molto potenti.

Há Leffe melhores. Principal qualidade é o teor alcoólico bem inserido. Bom custo benefício.

Tuoksu imelä, väri amber, suutuntuma pitkä, maku alkoholinen, siirppinen, ei yhtä maltaisen makea kuin leffet yleensä, ei-humalainen, pitkä, melko tasapainoinen. Ei leffemäisen hienostunut tai parhaita leffejä.
